If you have a very small bathroom, chances are you don’t have a lot of extra space for a bulky basin. A compact basin is a perfect solution to this problem. Compact basins are much smaller in size than traditional basins, making them ideal for small bathrooms. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your bathroom perfectly.

How to choose a hand basin for your small bathroom
When choosing a compact basin for your small bathroom, it’s important to consider both function and style. Think about how you’ll be using your basin — will you just be washing your hands in it, or will it be a multipurpose space for brushing your teeth and washing your face?
Small bathrooms are often tucked into nooks and crannies, so it can be challenging to find the right spot for your basin. Our range of mini basins includes corner basins, square, and narrow slimline options to help you make the most of your space.
Make sure to measure your space before you start shopping around. Once you know how much room you have to work with, you can start thinking about which style will suit your bathroom best.

What is the size of a small basin?
There is no definitive answer to this question as small basins come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. However, most compact basins are significantly smaller than traditional hand basins. Most of our mini sinks are under 40cm wide and have a slim profile of less than 30cm.
What is the minimum size of a basin?
Generally, 25cm is about the minimum depth at which you’ll still have space to wash your hands in a basin. Most basins this narrow are slightly wider, however, to give you some extra space. Round and square basins may be as small as 30cm at their widest measurement. However, choosing the smallest possible option may not be the most practical solution. If you need further advice, please get in touch.
How do I install a small basin?
Most of our compact basins come with all the necessary fixings for installation. However, depending on the model you choose, you may need to purchase additional brackets or plugs. You’ll also need to buy taps separately, and the pipes and accessories to connect your basin to your plumbing may or may not be included. Once you’ve got all the necessary supplies, follow the instructions that come with your basin. If you’re not confident in your DIY skills, we recommend hiring a professional plumber to install it.
What is a cloakroom basin?
A cloakroom basin is a small hand basin that is perfect for small bathrooms or cloakrooms. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your space perfectly.
What is the best way to clean a small basin?
The best way to clean your basin will depend on the material it is made from. For example, ceramic basins can be cleaned with a mild detergent and a soft cloth, while metal basins may require specialised cleaning products to avoid damage. Always check the care instructions that come with your basin before cleaning it.
Can small basins be used with a vanity?
Many very small basins are intended to be wall-hung with no vanity to maximise space. However, some small basins are designed to be used with a vanity unit. These units are often narrower than traditional vanity units to fit in smaller bathrooms. If you’re not sure whether your basin can be used with a vanity, please get in touch, and we’ll be happy to advise you.
